    Bride Hospitalized, Groom Arrested At Most Australian Wedding Ever

    The bride was hospitalized with alcohol poisoning, while the groom and best man were arrested and charged.

    A bride has been hospitalized, and her groom and his best man arrested, after a wedding reception in the Australian city of Hobart turned a bit too rowdy, in what can only be seen as a new standard for matrimonial celebration Down Under.

    The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports that guests called an ambulance at around midnight for the blushing bride, who was suffering from alcohol poisoning.

    When paramedics arrived, they had to call for police backup because the crowd, still no doubt moved by the earlier declaration of true love, had become drunk and rowdy.

    "Police said when they turned up some of the wedding party became aggressive and threw punches," the ABC reported.

    Six police units were ultimately required to bring the guests to order, with the groom and best man arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

    The maid of honor was also reportedly interviewed by police, but not charged.

    The Daily Mail reported the bride has since been released from hospital.

    On social media, Australians celebrated the nuptials with pride.
